I don't trust anything that looks that perfectly preserved after 200 years.Mel

The perfectly preserved pie is a consumable item in Fallout 4.


The pie's most significant difference from many other foodstuffs found throughout the wasteland is its preservative-filled nature, lacking any radiation when compared to most other pre-War foodstuffs.


The perfectly preserved pie can be obtained from any Port-A-Diner, with a small chance of dispensing. Obtaining the pie on any particular attempt is determined by the formula...

chance: the percentage chance of obtaining the pie
luck: the Sole Survivor's Luck, even if the Port-A-Diner is operated by a companion
attempts: the number of previous attempts made to obtain the pie
...thus, even with a Luck of 10, there is still only a 2% chance of obtaining the pie on the first attempt.

By cumulative probabilities, a Sole Survivor with Luck 5 has a 50% chance of obtaining the pie within the first 36 attempts. Luck 10 reduces that to 26 attempts, while Luck 1 doesn't reach those odds until 49 attempts.

Depending on the Sole Survivor's Luck, it takes between 75 and 105 attempts to reach a 95% chance of getting the pie, and 109 to 140 attempts to reach a 99.5% chance of getting the pie.

  • During the quest The Big Dig, Mel will comment on the pie upon encountering the Port-A-Diner located in The Dig, saying that he would not trust anything that has been perfectly preserved for 200 years.
  • In Survival mode, the pie has no food value, owing to a data keyword bug.
  • Nuka-World (add-on) There is a machine located in the Nuka-World junkyard that will always give the pie on the first attempt.


Xbox OneXbox One The Port-A-Diner in Medford Memorial Hospital will not dispense the pie; the animation shows the pie being delivered but the machine remains empty, and the pie will no longer be visible. [verified]
